The Bentley Continental GT, be it as a coupe or cabriolet, is very popular around the world in the latest generation as well. STARTECH also fulfills the most individual requests of the owners of this British 2+2-seater. STARTECH celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2019.
At the Geneva Motor Show 2019, the German refinement specialist presents the world premiere of an exclusively enhanced Bentley Continental GT Coupe.
STARTECH gives the 2+2-seater an even more dynamic look with aerodynamic-enhancement components made of naked carbon. Hi-tech forged wheels with a diameter of 22 inches and a ride-height lowering complete the thrilling appearance.
Continental GT owners looking for an interior tailored to their preferences in every aspect can commission the STARTECH upholsterers to create interior appointments made from the finest leather and Alcantara with the greatest love of detail.
The STARTECH designers invested their tremendous expertise in the development of bodywork components for the new Bentley Continental GT models, which offer an optimal blend of sporty-elegant design and aerodynamic efficiency. In addition, the STARTECH components are characterized by outstandingly precise fit and flawless surfaces. Of course, the STARTECH aerodynamic-enhancement components meet the strict requirements of the EU Directive on pedestrian protection.
To give the front of the GT an even more distinctive appearance, STARTECH developed a new front fascia, which like the production bumper is manufactured from PUR-R-RIM in OEM quality. The STARTECH front fascia gives the English Gran Turismo an even more distinctive appearance. Its sophisticated shape optimizes the flow of cooling air to the intercooler and the front brakes. It also has positive effects on the aerodynamics: front-axle lift at high speeds is reduced, which further optimizes the handling stability. To give the GT a big helping of racing looks, the wing profile running across the fascia is shaped like on a Formula 1 race car and is optionally available in a naked-carbon version.
The hi-tech material carbon also characterizes the sides and rear of a STARTECH-refined Bentley Continental GT of the current model series. Mirror caps made of that same material also are part of the STARTECH product range as is the upgrade for the rear bumper. The STARTECH carbon diffuser sporting five fins and a centrally positioned integrated LED light module, which serves equally as a rear fog lamp and as a backup light, gives the two-door an athletic update. The STARTECH aerodynamic-enhancement concept is completed by a naked-carbon spoiler lip for the trunk lid.
Thrilling looks and even more agile handling are the characteristic traits of the STARTECH Monostar M alloys for all Bentley Continental GT models. The wheels with five double-spokes and a hub cover, which is available in four colors and reminiscent of a center-lock nut, are produced using hi-tech forging technology. As a result, they offer an outstanding combination of lightweight design and maximum quality.
At the Geneva Motor Show 2019, STARTECH presents a variant of these wheels on which the surfaces of the rims were ground and then sealed with a smoke-colored clear coat to provide contrast to the black paintwork. Wheels of size 10Jx22 with 275/35 ZR 22 Pirelli P Zero high-performance tires make full use of the available space in the front fender wells. On the rear axle, 315/30 ZR 22 tires on rims 11.5 inches wide provide outstanding traction and high cornering forces.
The installation of the innovative STARTECH suspension lowering system, which lowers the ride height of the 2+2-seater by about 25 millimeters without compromising the ride quality, results in further sharpened driving dynamics.
Of course, STARTECH also offers countless options for exclusively refining the Continental GT interior. The company upholstery shop creates STARTECH REFINEMENT interior appointments tailored with utmost precision to the particular owner’s requests. The range of colors is endless – leather and Alcantara are dyed any desired hue as required. There are just as many choices when it comes to upholstery designs, quilting patterns, perforations and the range of noble woods available in a wide variety of colors and grains. It goes without saying that STARTECH also offers tailor-made carbon cockpit inlays for sporty-minded owners of a Bentley Continental.
On the show car for the Geneva Motor Show 2019, the interior designers completed the production leather appointments with flooring finished with consummate precision and made from the same gray leather as parts of the two-tone production interior. Stitched quilting in the footwells applied with pinpoint precision takes up the square upholstery pattern of the seats. The STARTECH floor mats, bordered with the same brown leather as was used on the seat surfaces, sports the identical design.
To demonstrate the sporty character of the STARTECH refinement range also in the cockpit, the production noble-wood trim is replaced with carbon elements with large ‘chequered flag’ structure and high-gloss surface sealant.
